With two weeks left of the transfer window, Manchester United are being linked with every player under the sun.

This week alone has seen Erik ten Hag’s side tipped to sign several household names across Europe.

But with the club’s glaring lack of recruitment strategy continuing to flounder and rear its ugly head, it’s hard to pinpoint which players the Dutchman specifically wants to sign.

Frenkie de Jong and Antony remain the former Ajax manager’s dream targets, but with the transfer window continuing to tick by, it seems an almighty task asking the Manchester United hierarchy to pull those two deals off when they’ve failed to make any headway all summer .

We’ve put together an XI of players linked with Manchester United moves this week – and yes, we have had to select a few players out of position to squeeze them in.

XI players linked with Manchester United moves this week

Yann Sommer – Borussia Monchengladbach

Swiss outlet Blick report that Manchester United have held internal talks about signing the Switzerland international this summer with Ten Hag wanting a number two to push and compete with David de Gea.

Callum Hudson-Odoi – Chelsea

By no means a right-back, but he has played at right wing-back, Manchester United are interested in signing the three-time England international, according to the Evening Standard.

Thomas Meunier – Borussia Dortmund

The Belgium international was considered as an option at right-back following his release from Paris Saint Germain, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to pursue the £50m Aaron Wan-Bissaka instead.

The Telegraph reports that the Red Devils are interested in signing the £12.6m-valued 30-year-old right-back from Bundesliga giants Dortmund, and he’s a former teammate of Jadon Sancho’s.

Casemiro – Real Madrid

For all the disappointment of how the Frenkie de Jong has dragged out, what a signing the Brazilian serial winner would be.

Fabrizio Romano revealed that John Murtough had contacted Atletico Madrid officials, but the La Liga giants wanted more than £42m million to sell the player they signed for half the price last summer.

João Felix – Manchester United

In the midst of the Casemiro and Cunha links, the Reds were also linked with a big-money move for Felix, but Atletico stated that they have no intention of selling their ‘priceless’ prized asset.

Christian Pulisic-Chelsea

Manchester United are interested in signing the USMNT captain on a season-long loan from Chelsea, according to the Athletic.
